I am a Certified Instructor of Infant Massage. I provide in home and private group instruction by appointment.
Each class is taught once a week over a four week time frame in order
to give both the parent and the child adequate time to learn and become
comfortable with the massage.
Each week we will learn strokes for a
new part of the body while reviewing strokes from previous lessons. That
way, new strokes are learned and previous information is reinforced. I
teach a little at a time to ensure that you are confident with every
Pressure, rate, rhythm, the length of the massage, respect,
bonding, why baby cries, baby’s body language, positioning of the baby,
relaxation and parent empowerment are some of the skills and topics that
will be discussed.
At the end of your sessions, you will receive photo handouts of all
the massage strokes — this way you have a handy reference for later, a
book – Infant Massage: A Handbook for Loving Parents by Vimela McClure
and a bottle of infant massage oil.
Recommended ages for this class are from birth to pre-crawling.
